IPFS in 2021 – Make your voice heard now

Hi all!

As 2020 comes to a close and we look ahead to 2021, it’s time to evaluate what’s important for the IPFS Project to focus on next year – and we need your help! Get involved now and shape the IPFS project plan for the next year. Help us reflect on IPFS progress and status, how the wider ecosystem and internet has evolved over the past year, and chart a course for our work in 2021 that optimizes for the long term success of our mission.

To see more about the process and how to get involved, please have a look at the Call for Proposals blog post. And let us know if you have any questions here.

  1. Better browser support.
  2. better performance (ipfs can be over 1000x slower at some really basic operations such as copy this directory)
  3. unixfs improvements (recursive copy takes a comically long amount of time)
  4. better directory sharding
  5. smarter defaults for how people use it. most people would beinfite from blake2b-256 and 4x block size
  6. stop crashing my internet by default.
  7. update wikipedia.
  8. add some ml datasets.
  9. have pin follow ipns
  10. azure support (which file store is the best perf with ipfs? disk vs blob vs filestore)
